Well Cappy Cappites, good news.
Not only can we all give our previous bosses the proverbial bird, we can now add icing to the cake because you all just made me enough money to pay for my rent via my Amazon Affiliate program.
If you don't know already, in addition to books, I make money on this thing called the "Amazon Affiliate Program" and NO it isn't one of those "ponzi multi-level marketing things."
How it works is that instead of you spending the time, money and gas going to Wal-Mart or a store, you show the Captain your love by clicking on the Amazon link in the right sidebar and buying whatever you need (and TRUST ME, Amazon has WHATEVER YOU NEED!). During your browsing/shopping session items you buy are assigned a code indicating you came from this here blog. And then, whatever you buy, toilet paper, video games, mittens, etc., is not only conveniently shipped right to your house, the ole Captain gets a 6-8% commission on those purchases.
- You get stuff you HAD TO GET ANYWAY
- The Captain gets a little commish on the side
- We all share "Warm Cappy Cap Fuzzies"
All it takes is a simple mental adjustment to realize, "hey , wait, I can get that cheaper on Amazon and don't have to drive to Wal-Mart AND the Captain gets warm fuzzies." Everyday you have to buy something, so you might as well buy it here. And if you REALLY want to help the ole Captain out, it's as simple as book-marking the Amazon page in the "Favorites" list on your browser.
As I said before, you all bought enough this past month that it covers my net mortgage payment. I thought it was going to be beer money when I first set up the program. But regardless the freedom you guys afford me by being thoughtful enough to purchase your items through here means the world to me and for that I am very thankful.
Besides, just imagine all those middle management banker types who swore I would fail. Now they watch me sleep in till 10AM everyday, write books AND still make a living. You can not only enjoy their misery and envy as they try to collect SBA ARC loan guarantees (just a little inside humor there), you can contribute to their misery by buying your wares via the Ole Captain and rub it in their faces.
And what's more fun than pissing off inept, corrupt bankers!
